A short amv about a pilot/plane's innocent desire to fly...
I suddenly woke up at around 5 AM in the morning one day with the huge motivation to work on an AMV, even though I have like 2 tests coming up and other assignments to do. I think I failed the test I had that afternoon... I blame this AMV. -_-;;
I had 0 experience with premier... or any other editing tool for that matter (virtualdub doesn't count as an editing tool, so I'm not counting it), so it was really crazy getting the video the way I wanted... dang crashes >_< This also means that this video has zero effects... outside of fades/crop/and other basic functions.
First, this video uses the TV-sized version of "Innocence" by 20th Century from the OST of the anime Eyeshield 21.
I would make it longer, except I don't have a high quality version of the song I used, plus I don't have the translated lyrics of the full version.
The first version took 8 hours of my life slaving away in an onslaught of inspiration to complete this short 1 minute and 22 second AMV. As I posted the initial version and received feedback, I made the anime into what it is now: the 7th version, complete with softsubbed subtitles packaged into a MKV container. YES, you can turn off the subtitles for the song.
The translation for the song are from Saizen-Fansubs. No idea exactly who translated it (tried to find out, but no replies on IRC/their forum), but it was most likely [aa]fiz.
The clips that I used are mainly synced to the lyrics of the song, if you have an ear for certain Japanese words, then you'll also notice the subtle choices for the scenes. The subtitles are included because like anime with catchy openings, I hate it when I don't understand the words. Plus the words are important in this AMV, because they dictated the choice of scenes.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this short, but sweet AMV that tries to tell a short story in the 1 minute and 22 seconds that the song lasts for.

I've been hiding behind this mask
so no one would notice my weak defense.
What was I protecting?
Unfortunate gloomy days
are on the horizon.
Yet our dreams will still
kick off the ground with unimaginable power.
I grab the wind and take flight!
As the chains of yesterday
are ripped away!
If they see that I can fly,
will they let me continue?
I'll clench my clumsy fists
beliving that they are wings!
